Night of the Dragon

By: Julie Kagawa

I’ve found in a lot of cases series endings simply fall short. They don’t live up to your high expectations. I am happy to say this is not those series.

Night of the Dragon, as they say, sticks the landing.

Tweaking Birds of Prey: Spoilers!

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

I really enjoyed it Birds of Prey when it came out last month. Still do. Bought it immediately when it was available and watched everything and honestly that only reinforced my biggest issue with the movie.

Besides Harley it needed stronger characters.

(Spoilers!)

To Read or Not To Read: Crescent City

Have you ever had a book where half your brain keeps telling you no, let it go, you aren’t going to like it, you know better, don’t do it? But at the same time it’s under your skin and you know you won’t be able to stop yourself until you read it.

The Queens of Gotham: The Harley Quinn Show

Harley and Ivy in the Harley Quinn Show

The Harley Quinn Show

Harley here is basically me telling everyone to watch the show or at the very least give it a chance. I love Harley and Ivy but I’m not big on animated shows (or the DC Universe app) so I was still surprised by how much I enjoyed the show and how good it really is…

Did He Really Solve Anything?

Daniel Craig in Knives Out

Knives Out

Directed By: Rian Johnson

Watching Knives Out was an interesting experience in large part because even though I knew who did it going in I was convinced the spoilers were wrong and something else happened. They weren’t and it didn’t.

Also it’s getting the wrong sequel.

Spoilers below:

Black Widow Pulled & Other Movie News

Scarlett and Florence in Black Widow

Well unsurprisingly (I was still hoping at least) Black Widow has been pulled from May 1st. I’m guess the Wonder Woman 1984 announcement comes next.

I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m pretty much done with 2020.
